New Delhi 2000-2001
Gunilla Klingberg & Peter Geschwind

The scenery is New Delhi. The time, when the past for a short moment meets the future in a spectacular show. Gunilla Klingberg and Peter Geschwind filmed the view from their window during a stay in New Delhi that lasted for three weeks starting from New Years Eve 2000-2001. Klingberg and Geschwind filmed short sequences every day without moving the position of the camera. A selection of the footage was then put together in different layers. The result looks very much like compressed diary notes where everything is allowed to happen at the same time rather than in a chronological order.

Peter Geschwind

Peter Geschwind

Peter Geschwind (1966–2021) was an artist working and living in Stockholm. Peter Geschwinds was educated at Kung. Konsthögskolan, Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm (1995 – 1998) and Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Department of Sculpture, Stockholm (1992 – 1995) and had numerous solo and group shows in Sweden and internationally. 2008–2018 he was a professor of fine arts with a focus on sculpture at Kung. Konsthögskolan, where he also was principal 2016–2017.

Geschwind worked with installations and physical animation with lights. His works take place in the realm of apparent motion. That is, it seems as if things are moving. When it comes to apparent motion, as with real motion, there’s a lot going on. It hinges on key bits and pieces that if removed would make it not an illusion.
